Join us for an in-person book launch and garden party 

Make a nostalgic return to the fun-loving days of historic Norumbega Park and celebrate Norumbega Park and the Totem Pole Ballroom, published by Arcadia Publishing, at our garden party on Sunday, August 1 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Newton Marriott, site of the original Norumbega Park.

As you enter, get serenaded by a barbershop quartet. Enjoy beer, wine, and amusement park food in the beautiful, riverside setting as you’re treated to magic and acrobatic performances, along with a chance to meet the book’s authors, Historic Newton’s Sara Leavitt Goldberg and Clara Silverstein.

Individual Sponsor tickets are $125 each, which includes an additional tax-deductible donation to Historic Newton. Sponsor ticket holders will receive special acknowledgment in our event program and a signed copy of the book!
